Hi Lori and everyone!I prefer to strip the headers as I come to them in my reading. That way, I am sure what I am stripping, and the little interruption in reading isn't bothersome to me.
I know this is a personal thing, so do what feels right to you. Debby At 02:44 PM 12/21/2009, Lori Castner wrote
People have made several useful suggestions for stripping headers with global search and replace, but even so I always remove them manually as I read through the book. For me, removing them manually just feels safer.Sometimes I go through the text page by page and remove the headers before reading the book; that way the text reads more smoothly and without interruption. But either way, I remove them one by one!But I do proofread fewer books than many of you do.

I have suggested this before. Oftentimes, there is a tab after the header and before the page number on the right page, and a tab before the header and after the page number on the left page. I have used this technique of removing headers with their associated tabs to eliminate thousands of headers without fear of removing text that I shouldn't.It is also true, as you say, that search and replace should always be used with care.Evan ----- Original Message ----- From: <mailto:mirxtech@xxxxxxxxx>Jamie Yates, CPhT To: <mailto:bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, December 21, 2009 1:33 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Stripping headersLots of times there is a tab after the header. If you search for the text plus a tab you might have better luck in doing a global replace, but I recommend using a global replace very carefully.For example if it is The Catcher in the Rye that is the header look for The Catcher in the Rye^t (^t is the tab symbol in Word 2003).-- Jamie in Michigan Currently Reading: While My Pretty One Knits by Anne CanadeoEarn cash for answering trivia questions every 3 hours: <http://instantcashsweepstakes.com/invitations/ref_link/49497>http://instantcashsweepstakes.com/invitations/ref_link/49497See everything I've read this year at: <http://www.michrxtech.com/books.html>www.michrxtech.com/books.htmlNo virus found in this incoming message.
